1. Mike Schmidt
2. Eddie Mathews
3. Ron Santo
4. Chipper Jones
5. George Brett
6. Brooks Robinson
7. Wade Boggs
8. Scott Rolen
9. Buddy Bell
10. George Kell

Coach K you have Rolen too high. Other than that I can agree.

1. Mike Schmidt
2. Eddie Mathews
3. Chipper Jones
4. George Brett
5. Wade Boggs
6. Ron Santo
7. Home Run Baker
8. Scott Rolen
9. Brooks Robinson

I think Chipper is really close to overtaking both Schmidt and Mathews in my mind. Maybe the only thing holding him back is his reputation as a poor defender and maybe his time in LF.

It's good to see people on here with some common sense!

I don't understand the rest of the baseball worlds obsession with Brooks Robinson.

Listening to my family members that got to watch him play during the entire span of his career.... and I quote...

"He was a joke offensively and if it wasn't for his glove, he would not be in the Hall of Fame!"

I think calling him a "joke offensively" is a bit harsh. His finest season came in 1964, when he hit .317 with 28 homers and 118 RBI. He was AL MVP that year beating out the likes of Mantle, Killebrew and Kaline. He was in the top 4 in MVP voting 5 times. He played more games at third base than anybody (2,870) and has the best fielding percentage (.971). His play in the 1970 World Series on a national stage, both offensively and defensively, are a huge reason he's in the HOF. He batted better than .500 that postseason, going 16 for 33 with two homers.

At the worst, it makes him on a par with Ozzie Smith, only with more Gold Gloves, better offensive stats and an MVP.

As far as Chipper goes, he was the finest offensive player on a great team. Hopefully voters will remember the 14 consecutive division titles and not the single World Series win.
